Description

I would like to share my knowledge of “shuji" (calligraphy) and “shodo" (the way of writing) through this online experience. This experience is not only about writing calligraphy. You'll also learn about its background and the history of the Japanese language. Calligraphy expresses one’s personality and gives a good insight into that person’s way of life. It touches the heart and, somehow, clears the mind.

I'll begin the session with an introduction to calligraphy and teach you Japanese words. After that, I'll give a demonstration, and then you'll get some hands-on experience. Lastly, we will have a Q&A session to cover what we have done in our class.
